Channel 67 is the MPT Baltimore station, WMPB which is digital on 29. The Frederick station, WFPT, is analog on channel 62, digital 28. The complete list of the six MPT broadcast stations with their analog and digital channels can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryland_Public_Television
Is there some reason why multiple stations in Maryland have messed up PSIP channel assignments? Do they all use a central service for filling out the PSIP information? Somebody is screwing up.
However, there will be no "transition" to a new number. The existing stations are to forever be known by their analog channel number. So WMPB-DT is supposed to always show up as channel 67 even after the analog shutdown, even though they are broadcasting on channel 29. This all set by the FCC.
